From the 27th until 30th December, exists a magical time called Twixmas. Here is everything you need to know about Twixmas, including how to spend it in Poole.

What is Twixmas?

Twixmas is the word used to refer to the days between Christmas and New Year (27th-30th December), when – life commitments depending – you can take some much-needed down time. The word Twixmas originates from the old English word ‘betwixt’ or in modern English ‘between’. For many of us, it's a time when we can fully relax and spend our days doing nothing but some also enjoy planning outings with family or friends. Poole is a wonderful place to spend Twixmas doing both!

What to do during Twixmas?

Time for a walk…

Twixmas is a great time to slow down, maybe even go offline and recharge yourself before another year starts. A perfect way to do this is by going for a walk! Enjoy the beach at Sandbanks Peninsula up to Branksome Beach wander around Upton Country Park or stroll along Poole Quay. There are so many routes in Poole - it’s difficult to choose where to go!

Sales shopping?

During Twixmas, the post-Christmas sales are live and there is nothing better than rummaging and finding a bargain. Explore the high street or the Dolphin Centre and bag some local bargains!
